Anyone using Facebook will know that it’s quite annoying losing a good chunk of screen real estate to the adverts on the right hand side.
Of course, many others think so and there is a nice extension that will block various adverts around the internet including Facebook’s own.
Now, I’m not going to get into the morality of blocking adverts on websites here – I’m simply showing you how to do it. If the internet goes bust, it isn’t my fault.
- Open Firefox
- Click ‘Tools’ > Add-ons
- Click ‘Get Add-ons’
- Type adblock plus into the search box
- Click on the Adblock Plus extension and then click Add to Firefox…
- Click Install Now
- Click Restart Firefox
Firefox should restart – so now we can use a subscription to block the adverts. If the Welcom to Adblock Plus window doesn’t open, click on Tools > Add-ons > Adblock Plus > Preferences. Click on Filters > Add filters subscription.
- Select the Easylist USA option and click on subscribe.
- Click OK
That’s it! Now that you have the ad filtering installed – Facebook should now be advert free in the right-hand side of the page.
